The article presents information on research underway at Massachusetts Institute of Technology Industrial Relations Section. David P. Taylor, with the assistance of Francis M. McLaughlin, completed the second year of research on the Kendall Square Urban Renewal Project. They are tracing the experience of the 151 firms which have been displaced or will be displaced by the construction of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Electronics Research Center near Kendall Square and a sample of 2,700 employees displaced as a consequence. With Michale J. Piore of the department of economics, Taylor is also examining the relative efficiency of publicly subsidized on the-job training programs and private efforts in the same industry, occupation, and geographical location. The study has been concentrated in the printing, tool-and-die, and restaurant industries. Its goal is to determine the extent to which government-supported programs supplement private efforts. This study is particularly significant because of the current large-scale government efforts to subsidize training of hard-core unemployed or disadvantaged groups.
